Crocodile travelling cigar caddy by Asprey, 1920
Price Code: ££££
An extraordinarily large and very rare travelling cigar caddy, in lustrous crocodile hide – the deep outer sleeve slides off to reveal the inner compartment, hand-stitched and triple-hinged to open like a book and stand vertically, and able to accommodate at least 40 cigars of various lengths. We have previously owned a smaller example of this design, this example being double the capacity. Stamped ASPREY LONDON to the inner case. English, circa 1920.
Length: 9 inches (23 cm)
Depth: 5 inches (13 cm)
